Unfortunately, the numbers don’t lie. Real estate sales are down for the 9 county Indianapolis, Indiana area although the number of listings has remained steady for the past three months. January 2010 had 1,011 homes sell. Which compared to the 2,323 homes that sold in October 2009 sounds like terrible news. Factor in the holiday season and the current weather conditions and this numbers do not shock me at all.
On a more promising note there were also 1,299 home that pended in January 2010. Homes are still selling, just not at the rate we are accustomed to.
